The Greek

Restaurants, Greek Tribeca
4 out of 5 stars
(2user reviews)
This Greek taverna—from Thessaloniki native Tom Galis (Mexicue)—focuses on food from the country's northern regions. Wine barrels hang from the ceiling above the bar, while mismatched woods, stencil crown molding and distressed window shutters add to the rustic vibe. Slip into a worn-leather banquette for shareable meze (sweetbreads, grape leaves) and rotisserie-cooked meats (leg of lamb, roasted chicken) with a glass of Macedonian wine. The ten-stool copper bar features an all-Greek wine list, Hellenic beers like Mythos and Alpha, and cocktails spiked with ouzo or mastika.

The Greek is one of my favorite lunch and dinner spots in Tribeca. It's a great spot for group meals or an intimate dinner for two. The atmosphere is spot on with a natural earthy feel. I recommend ordering a bit of everything for the table to share and round it out with the meat plate. If you're gf, you're safe here. On the menu they've identified which items (almost all) are gf or can be made gf. Be sure to ask for veggies to replace the pita you'll receive if you order the spreads. Lastly, if you're a martini drinker you have to try their gin martini with kalamata olives. It's delicious!
